Death Plaque a.k.a Memorial Plaque

Service No: 505

Unit No: 7

Corps/Service: Infantry

Country: Australia
I am searching for the missing First World War Memorial Plaque (colloquially but incorrectly known as a 'Death Plaque') which was commissioned in memory of Trafford Cyril PETTIGREW. Trafford Cyril PETTIGREW is my great-uncle and his service number was 505. He served with the 7th Battalion and tragically was killed in action on 25/04/1915, North Beach, Anzac Cove. The plaque was taken by deception from my father, Joseph Cyril Pettigrew, in Sydney around 2000-2003, before he died. The person involved purported to represent some sort of museum and took the plaque on loan for a display. My father, an ex-serviceman VX21279, was in his eighties. Also missing, although I believe legitimately to have been lost, are Traff’s Trio consisting of the 1914-1915 Star, British War Medal and Victory Medal. In 2018 the Department of Defence Honours and Awards section were gracious enough to allow me to claim Traff’s Commemorative Medallion as his nearest surviving next of kin. To me, the plaque represents not only Trafford Cyril’s bravery and sacrifice, but also the sons, uncles and cousins that were never to be. Thanking you for your time and consideration, Respectfully yours, Lindsay Trafford Pettigrew.

Death Plaque a.k.a Memorial Plaque

Service No: 3447

Unit No: 55

Corps/Service: Infantry

Country: Australia
I am in possession of the Memorial Plaque commemorating an Australian soldier named Ernest Albert McCORMACK. The Memorial Plaque was given to me by a tree arborist in Yass NSW. It appears to have been in their family's possession for over 50 years and he informed me that he can remember player with it as a child. The Memorial Plaque was given to him by his father. It may have come into his possession from a box of sundries at an auction but this is not confirmed. I have contacted the Condobolin library and they sent me some information in relation to Ernest McCORMACK and his wife. They were married just prior to his embarkation for France. Her maiden name was either Florence Glisson or Hucker and she operated the Court House Hotel in Condobolin. His parents were William and Bridget McCormack possibly from/buried in Brookside Victoria. There also must be a headstone in Rookwood cemetery Section 6 row 14. I have come to a stand still on finding any relatives that it should be returned to. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
